DSM to present at ITB Group’s Under-the-Hood Innovation: Polymers and Thermal Management Conference
Bill Burnham, Business Development Manager, will present “Delivering Fuel Economy Savings in Powertrain Applications”. In this presentation he will highlight how Stanyl® PA46, when used on chain contact elements in a typical cam drive system, can reduce rotational friction torque. This has proven to be a very cost effective way of reducing fuel consumption across the drive cycle of the vehicle.
Russell Bloomfield, Senior Application Development Engineer, will present “High Performance Materials for Air Induction Components.” DSM has developed new, super-stabilized Diablo PA66 and PA46 grades for air induction applications that offer superior heat deflection temperature (HDT) as compared to other material solutions available today. At the same time, DSM’s materials also offer excellent chemical resistance to low pH environment and robust, long-term thermal aging performance. The presentation will highlight the performance attributes of these material grades and how they are ideal for metal replacement on hot charge air ducts.
This technical automotive conference is dedicated to plastic engine parts and advance thermal management. It brings together key experts as they convene to network, discuss and showcase their industry leading developments and innovations in processes, simulation, materials, extrusion, blow molding, components, technologies and thermal management control.
